Subject: Gym today will be in the kitchen..
Newsreel like segments telling how The Common Man Helps Each Other during Wartime!

In segment one, A pile of families move into wartime housing, only to realize the school is not built yet. No problem, we'll just use one of the non-used houses to teach the children!! This leads to ultrabizarre shots of kids desks crammed into what looks like a kitchen..
Segment 2 details people living in trailer parks because of the war. Problem is, those darned kids just can't keep quiet while someone is sleeping! No problem, we'll just import some dangerous-looking dilipadated sheds the army is not using, take them apart and rebuild a community hall/school. This looks.. rickity.
Segment 3 is a typical rah of how people use Sunday, their day of rest of course, to be trained off to do hard labor for the army. I wonder how many people would want to do that now..
